    they tested the C2S at the same speed 2 years ago ???

    Re: road and track test

    Agree, I guess you can't trust everything you read..............

    Re: road and track test

    This test was done by the Italian car magazine Quattroruote.
    The Porsche had clutch problems that were caused by the drivers of Quattroruote but they had the nerve to blame Porsche for that problem and said that the clutch was not strong/big enough.

    Re: road and track test

    Whatever, you guys are so blinded that its not even funny. Here's a tip for you, not everyone in the world is going to agree with you, learn to live with it.

    Re: road and track test

    You have to admit that 9.5 seconds 0-100 is ridiculously slow when most car mags acheive 8 flat or under. Car and Driver hit 0-100 in 7.8, how do you explain the nearly 2 second difference?

    Re: road and track test

    Oh gee, I don't know, altitude, weather, temperature, test surface, driver, car condition. They tested the car within the last month correct? During the height of the hottest summer on record.

    No, still not a possibility. The same time was achieved by a 996TT in a comparo with the Corvette several years ago in 100 degree heat. We haven't had these sort of temperatures yet here. The magazine editors are a bunch of incompetents, that's the real explanation. The Ferrari, while naturally aspirated, would also be affected by excessive heat, if it were indeed the case, but it turned out some of the best times ever recorded for the 430. So no, conditions weren't the problem.
